Homemade Fajita Seasoning

2 Comments

Recently, I wanted to make a recipe that called for fajita seasoning and, of course, I had none.  So I searched around and found this homemade recipe for it.  So I tried it.  Result?  I will never buy fajita seasoning again.  I always have these spices and sugar and cornstarch and it makes enough for one time use so no need to store it.  It’s just-enough spicy and perfect for us.  Give it a try!

Tomorrow I’ll post the recipe I used this seasoning mix in!

Homemade Fajita Seasoning

1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsps chili powder
1 tsp salt ~ I use kosher
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cumin

Mix the cornstarch and all the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl. Use as directed in your recipe. Makes the same amount as a packet of fajita seasoning.

Italian Dressing Mix

3 Comments

I needed a package of Italian dressing mix recently and didn’t have one so I searched through my recipes and found this for a homemade version.  It worked perfectly and I won’t have to buy the packets anymore.  I just store it in a baggie on my spice shelf.

Italian Dressing Mix

1 tbsp garlic salt
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp white sugar
2 tbsps dried oregano
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried basil
1 tbsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp celery salt
2 tbsps salt

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together. Store in a container.

If you want to make Italian dressing with it, whisk together 1/4 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cup canola oil or olive oil, 2 tbsps water and 2 tbsps dry mix.

Happy Cooking!
